Re: Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start
I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.

I think that if you have a carby system that I would be checking the auto choke operation. IF efi I would be running fault codes looking for sensor problems in the air intake area. Check the duel switch and ensure that there is not possibility of an air leak allowing fuel to drain back in the system as replacing the unit appears to be the start of your problem
Your van does not have OBD, but it does have a EEC-IV and MCU connector sit under the hood near the battery, will have a cover over the connector small black cover will read on it (diag. connector).Hope this was very helpful.
i've never heard of a cold temp sensor... theres an intake air temp sensor it goes in the large plastic tube that comes off your air filter box, i doubt this is your problem tho.. i would lean more toward the fuel pressure regulator or one of the injectors could be dumping. also a clogged catylitic converter may cause an overfueling situation. hope this helps and good luck
